Event description


BASCSN Annual Conference

Dear Colleague

I am delighted to invite you to join us at the BASCSN Annual Professional Development Conference on the 28th/29th November 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Birmingham NEC.

Beginning at 6.30pm on the Thursday 28th November the programme (see below) covers a range of topics that will be of interest to all specialist skin cancer nurses and provides plenty of time for discussion.

Your consistent feedback is that the conference is an excellent opportunity to keep up to date with the latest developments in our field and learn from other specialists and your own colleagues. It is also a great opportunity to network with colleagues from around the country.

The meeting will also include our AGM where we will share with you what we have achieved in the past year and we can discuss plans for the coming year.

We do hope you can join us and contribute to making it a really successful conference.

Please register as soon as you can so that we can plan for numbers. If you are applying for a grant or funding please register and let us know you are waiting for a grant or approval. Macmillan can take some time to process applications so get your forms in as soon as you can. If you have any queries please contact Tim (

Best wishes


Saskia Reeken
